Private Sessions Programs

Tamryns story Infinite Dog

When should I have private sessions?

We can cover a lot of ground in private sessions together. They are helpful for times when the group classes don’t fit your schedule for your dog or puppy and you would like to learn the material for yourself and your family. Also, if your dog has aggression or other behaviour issues, it is helpful to have private sessions for teaching.

How are private sessions helpful?

Private sessions give you the support you need to focus on your dog and help him or her understand how to fit well into our human world and your daily life. We can attune each lesson directly to his or her needs, supporting their learning with fun and love. Shamanic dog training is ideal for one on one teaching. We introduce the beautiful theories of ayni (right relationship), munay (unconditional love) and killary (fluidity) to your relationship with precision and accuracy. Your success is greater when you have such direct assistance.

What will I learn in private sessions?

With shamanic dog training, you are taught to make concessions for your dog and his or her personality, so that they feel comfortable receiving the information you are providing. You are asked to share your life with your dog with openness and acceptance, beyond the traditional set up of control-based obedience, conditioning and dominance.

Your questions and challenges are addressed carefully and thoroughly, to help you access the deepening of relationship promised by shamanic dog training. It is a joy to see the shift in your dog’s behaviour as he or she feels your love deepen and senses the effort you are making to “meet her halfway”, bridging the gap between human and dog. Your communication becomes lighter and more fluid, and resolving conflict becomes simpler and clearer.

How does shamanic dog training work?

The intention behind shamanic dog training is not to provide you with a set of rules to follow for this or that pre-prescribed outcome. Rather, the intention is to help you find a rhythm with your dog for connecting and teaching that lives and breathes with you through each day and each moment. So that your own intuition and knowing about your dog is what guides you to choose avenues and methods for handling issues and lessons.

Of course, there are theories and helpful lessons that we introduce, to get you started. There are standards of behaviour that we build into the foundation of relationship (on both sides of the equation) to set the stage for the sense of freedom and ease that is to come when you embrace the challenge of becoming engaged with your dog as a friend, partner and companion. Much different than the dominant or leadership based ideas behind much dog training information today. Instead, we are looking to build communication channels and loving gap-bridges that compensate for the difference in species, perspective and point of view.

When you leave behind the belief that dog training is something that you need to win at, you can invite your dog to explore the aspects of human life that may confuse him or fluster him and you can offer much help for him to settle into a set of life skills that work best for him.

Is shamanic dog training right for me?

While this appeals to our sense of affection and caring for our dogs, there may be the worry that this is all too “puffy”, “light” and “not nearly tough enough”. If this is your point of view, may I suggest that the most powerful forces on earth are gentle and unseen. They are love, trust and community. These are the guiding forces of our lives, and if we can attune to them within the confines of the dog-human relationship, we can harness the power to create change beyond our current beliefs. If only we can step aside from the old ideas of winning every interaction, of when-I-tell-you-you-better-do-it-NOW mentality and let a softer side of relationship take root.

Thank you for taking the time to listen to these ideas. They are not the standard theories we are accustomed to hearing, and they may or may not sink in with comfort or ease. If these feel right to you, or make some sense to you, then perhaps shamanic dog training is right for you.

Everyday learning program

(for dogs 5 months & older with no aggression or behaviour problems)

Here we address the everyday issues that torment us as we live with our dogs. We teach handy things like come when called, be polite with people and don’t touch my things, don’t leave the house or yard or vehicle without permission, don’t pull on the leash and stay connected and responsive when off-leash.

Embedded in the teaching with the everyday learning program are the fundamentals of shamanic dog training of ayni (right relationship), munay (unconditional love) and killary (fluidity). We introduce these foundational ideas and integrate them into daily life and everyday interactions. These are the building blocks for free-flowing communication and strong connections that bridge the gap between human and dog – allowing you and your dog to relax into your days together and find the joy and fun in relationship together.

The everyday learning program includes:

Aggression and behaviour problems program

(details, below)

If you are experiencing difficulty with your dog that feels beyond “regular” dog issues – such as reactivity to other people or dogs, anxiety of any kind, obsessive behaviour, fearfulness or extreme shyness, etc. – please consider the aggression and behaviour problems program.

It can be so reassuring to receive direct and specific support for the very issues that are causing the most trouble in your family and home with your dog. To have someone listen to you and take your concerns seriously and help you formulate a plan to make changes in daily life is so helpful. Your dog and you have the skills to make the changes you desire – you just need a little support in making it happen. Rest assured that you have done nothing to cause the issues with your dog, nor are you at fault for making them any worse or more intense. It just doesn’t work that way. Instead, please consider that there is an underlying issue within your dog’s perception of events and momentums that cause the problem in the first place.

Personality, breed type, background and life experience all contribute to the complex issues that face our dogs and by extension, us. There are ways of understanding, connecting and teaching that make many of the problems you experience shift and dissolve by themselves. Any core issues remaining can be addressed by ongoing management and support.

The shamanic dog training principles of right relationship (ayni), unconditional love (munay) and fluidity (killary) are essential to making the changes you are looking for. These quiet but powerful techniques and life skills are influential in breaking down barriers to communication and building bridges of co-operation and trust necessary to tackle big problems together and in partnership.

By asking your dog to trust you, and by promising your dog that you will take his or her concerns and point of view seriously, you are helping him or her see that you are offering a hand out of the turmoil, fear, confusion or frustration plaguing them. They can, with your loving and sweet support, choose to let go of the old habits, reactions and patterns they have developed and instead adopt the calmer, more centered and confident alternatives you are offering – with kindness.

With tools such as kindness, showing and speaking, you will be able to transform your relationship with your dog into one where she or he sees you as the key to change, the doorway to peace and the provider of reassurance that things will be different from now on. These are the things that ignite deep change and transition control-based relationships into consciousness/awareness based ones.

Only you can decide how you wish to approach the issues you and your dog are experiencing. Perhaps we can be helpful in showing a new way to address concerns and problems. If what you have been trying so far has not produced the results you had hoped or were promised, maybe it is time to give Infinite Dog a try.
